JEM bass?

I'd buy it.


The JEM can hold its own. I know Vai doesn't play bass, but his signature guitar doesn't have his name on it...

The Strat had the Jazz


The Tele had the P


The Les Paul had the Les Paul bass

Re: JEM bass?

Vai's played bass on a lot of his recordings. The more I think about it, the more a Jem bass makes sense.

Re: JEM bass?

Let me be the first to say it is way overpriced.

Re: JEM bass?

A long time ago, Ibanez did this with the RG...



it was called the RD Bass.

I imagine the JEM Bass would be something similar with a monkey grip? But to be honest, i'm not sure I like the looks of that bass there XD

Re: JEM bass?

Do you REALLY want Ibanez to move into high priced basses? Didn't you see that limited Musician bass which was like 10k?

Re: JEM bass?

Does anyone know why Ibanez doesnt use the same headstock as the RD on their basses anymore? Or is that an LACS option only? Gassin for a 5 string ibby bass with that headstock

I personally highly dislike the new Ibanez bass head. I prefer the old one way over it.


Did they made 5'er RD's?

Same here man......new headstock doesnt do nothing for me!!! Oh yeah, the inline version looks heaps better(of course, each to their own)

I dont know if RD's came in 5 string versions......must investigate that.......if they do, ill get one and do a 'universe' mod to it!!!!

Can someone enlighten us if RD's came in 5 strings please!!!

Re: JEM bass?

It would need to be at least as good as a Lakland Skyline, and compete at that price point as well - two very difficult marks to hit.
